A new year and a new ice-cream shoppe for me to check out! Recently opening its doors along the Desker Road stretch, @theaphroditesg is the new kid in-town offering freshly churned ice-creams with Earthy and floral flavours.

Being an ice-cream connoisseur, I was excited to try a new ice-cream shoppe and Aphrodite did not disappoint. I'm always attracted to new and unique flavours and that's where Aphrodite entices. With flavours such as Blood Orange Sorbet, Salted Honey, Goat Cheese and their specially namesake Aphrodite - which is a blue cheese chocolate - dang I was definitely intrigued.

I decided to go with three scoops (cos that's just who I am as a person) and a waffle - choosing flavours of:

◾Blood Orange Sorbet
I normally tend to shy away from sorbet as I gravitate towards ice-cream and would rather get something creamy instead of icy. However, Aphrodite does sorbet really well and to my surprise it was just as creamy as ice-cream rather than a frozen icy mess. Let's just say I was impressed.

◾Drifting Snowflakes Jasmine
Now herbal tea flavours tend to be a hit or miss as sometimes it's too subtle but the one over here was definitely a hit. One spoonful and it was delectable yet intense Jasmine flavours all around.

◾Aphrodite
Now the pièce de résistance was none other than their blue cheese chocolate flavour. I was intrigued by this flavour the most and was pleasantly surprised to find that it tasted really good. The blue cheese notes comes as an aftertaste with a chocolate majority and both complemented each other. A must get for sure for any adventurous palates out there like moi.

If I had to be picky about stuff, well the waffle I got was sadly a tad overdone and it mostly had a burnt taste to it. The scoops of ice-cream were also less than pretty but that's just my photographer aesthetic speaking.

Aphrodite definitely does ice-cream justice and I was glad there was a proper ice-cream shoppe around the Jalan Besar area finally - the others around are just.... bleh. *Shade thrown*

Gelato is super taste and smooth! Prices are super ok! Idk how they make money they make their ice cream in small batches in house! They always have unique flavours! My favourite is the hojicha, Smokey and so bold yet not sweet!

Waffles was not bad . Chose blue cheese chocolate and snowflakes jasmine for the ice cream flavours. Love the latter one a lot! The former one was quite unique too

A lovely place with delicious gelato and crisp waffles! Interesting flavours and super worth it for the 1 for 1 - would pay for it even without! $5 for a generous single scoop, +6 for waffle.

Easily my new favorite gelato place with unique flavors and minimalism interiors - open till 2am!!!!! Must get their jasmine and their blue cheese is worth a try!

Checked out the new Aphrodite — a pretty new ice-cream establishment that and just recently opened their doors along Desker Road in the Jalan Besar neighbourhood. For those who may be unfamiliar with the exact street where Aphrodite is located at, they are located just slightly diagonally opposite the Phat Chic Forever outlet here; also just a stone’s throw away from Berseh Food Centre. Decked in a rather simple but soothing decor theme, the cafe features white walls and wooden furnishing and fittings — clean, but inviting. All the gelato flavours here are made in-house; the same can also be said about their waffles and waffle cones here. Whilst they are currently serving up tea and milkshakes as the only choices of beverage here, they are also looking into serving up specialty coffee here in time to come.

Two types of waffles are being listed on the menu here; the Original and the Charcoal — the latter was unavailable for the day so we opted for the former instead, and also went with a scoop of the Aphrodite (also their signature flavour) Gelato, as well as the Drifting Snowflake Jasmine Gelato. The waffle here comes with a drizzle of maple syrup around the side as well, where patrons can dab the waffle on for a slight sweetness. We felt that the Original Waffle here is quite decent; it not only wafts of a distinct buttermilk fragrance, but was crisp on the outside yet fluffy within — one that was rather close to being cake-y yet not overly dense. We also like how the waffle doesn’t really come too sweetened here; much of the reason being so was due to how they had intended the flavours of which are to be supplemented by the scoops of gelato and maple syrup drizzled along the side. Between the two scoops of gelato we had opted for, the Drifting Snowflake Jasmine is the safer option between the two; essentially a flavour churned from Jasmine Tea, the “Drifting Snowflake” may sound fitting for the festive season, but actually refers to the type of tea leaves used, being the Bi Tan Piao Xue — it’s pretty light and subtle, but the floral and tea aroma remains rather distinct and noticeable without overwhelming the tastebuds. In comparison, the Aphrodite is a more daring approach — a combination of blue cheese and chocolate which is especially intriguing; the chocolate base provided much of the bittersweet notes, but ends off on a rather interesting hint of blue cheese that wasn’t particularly heavy that provided a flavoural contrast that wasn’t particularly intimidating, and actually works for us. Also appreciated how the gelatos here were smooth; all that whilst not being particularly milky, and carried its intended flavours throughout especially well.

It is very early days for Aphrodite considering that they had only opened their doors since Christmas Eve, but they are undoubtedly off a very good start. Interesting yet solid gelato flavours is pretty much in their blood here — think Brown Butter Spice, Thyme and Goat Cheese; all of which are flavours we are especially keen on trying to next time we are here. There has been much thought placed in their creations here, and it pretty much tells by its own — an earnest and down-to-earth operation where the folks behind the counter are serious on providing their very best for the patrons who comes through their doors. Wishing the folks behind Aphrodite all the best; can’t wait to be back soon to try the other inventive flavours which they have to offer!
